The following antiquities were surveyed in the vicinity of the excavation in the past: agricultural installations, agricultural terraces, field walls, lime-kilns, cisterns, rock-hewn burial caves, quarries and rock-cuttings (Shavit 2013: Sites 409 and 480 and their vicinity). A lime-kiln, a cistern, rock-hewn shafts, rock-cuttings and natural caves were exposed in an excavation conducted in 2006 northwest of the current excavation area (Rauchberger 2008). Along with the finds of previous excavations and surveys, the field walls that were revealed in the excavation attest to the extensive agricultural activity that occurred in the vicinity of Horbat Nekhes and Horbat Bet ‘Anava.
